The Prescott Corral of the Westerners has won Westerners International's most prestigious award for 2013, the "Co-Founders Heads-Up Award," for the eighth time since 1970.

This annual award goes to the outstanding corral in the world based on programs, membership, publications, activities and community contributions.

The local corral's efforts included the 10th annual Western History Symposium and the second year producing The Daily Courier's "Days Past" Sunday feature, both in cooperation with the Sharlot Hall Museum; issues 12 and 13 of the Territorial Times Magazine with historical articles about the real West; 12 issues of the RoundUp monthly newsletter; outstanding monthly dinner programs; contributions to local museums at Museum Night; and continuation of the corral's website.

Additionally, Prescott Westerner Al Bates won a 3rd place award in the 2013 international competition for his presentation, "Prescott's 1898 Railroad War."

The Prescott Corral was founded in 1962 as an affiliate of Westerners International, an organization dedicated to the preservation of the American West. The corral has about 150 members.
